Fish Cakes

These are simple and delicious . No fuss with great results. 225 grams fish fillet yeilded 4 medium sized partties / cakes.
225-250 Grams Fish Fillet - I used Sole.
1 Teaspoon Minced Garlic.
1/2 Teaspoon Minced Lemongrass ( use the bulb or close to the bulb inner part of the stalk )
1/2 Teaspoon Galanga - Substitute with Ginger.
2 Tablespoons Light Soy Sauce.
2 Teaspoons 5 Spice ( use a pinch of gara masala if you don't have ).
1 Teaspoon Sesame Oil.

Chop the fish and with a knife mince , but not too finely .Add all the ingredients , mix well , keep under cling wrap for a few hours. When ready to make bring fish mince to room temperature , fry a tiny piece and taste to get a fix of the flavor . Adjust flavors in the raw mince and then proceed to shape you fish cakes.
Take 2 tablespoons of oil , warm up on a non stick and place all patties to cook. Don't disturb for 3-4 minutes, a gently shake will make them move, now turn over and cook another 2-3 minutes till you have the right color. Just before taking off the fire I added chopped spring onions and some bok choy to the pan , increased the heat and stir fried to vegetables for 1 minute in the juices/oil infused with the fish cakes. I then plated the dish straight from the pan.
